Romney unveils his jobs plan with a dig at Obama

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Standing under a banner that read "Day One, Job One," former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney unveiled his jobs plan Tuesday with a pledge to take steps on his first day as president to undo what he called failed economic policies of the Obama administration.

In a speech at an international truck company in North Las Vegas, Nevada, the Republican presidential candidate spoke from notes - rather than a prepared speech or using a teleprompter - in describing a 59-point plan that he said would increase U.S. economic growth by 4% a year and create more than 11 million jobs in his first four years in office if he is elected in 2012.

    Smaller government = higher unemployment (people hold those jobs).

    He'll outsource our government if it will put a nickel in his pocket. WE DON'T NEED A CORPORATIST OR A TEABAGGER IN OUR WHITEHOUSE.

    He was 47th as Governor in job creation and we all know that Governors have more power and responsibility to create jobs over the President. It is well known he was a job killer in the private sector and one of the worst at job creation, and he has been umemployable for five years so pretty hard to take him seriously. If he was so good at job creation the very best chamce he had was the last five years, and how many jobs did he create in the last five years with all of his wealth and resources ? Romneys five year run for President is just getting old and boring.
